Paul introduces clear instruction as to Timothy's
Responsibility to Build a Church
Today's Passage: 1 Timothy 1: 8-22
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the chapter NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the chapter below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
18. Timothy, my son, here are my instructions for you, based on the prophetic words spoken about you earlier.
May they help you fight well in the Lord's battles.
19. Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.
10. Hymenaeus and Alexander are two examples. I threw them out and handed them over to Satan so they might learn not to blaspheme God.
1 Timothy 1:18-20 NLT
In encourage you to:
Thank you for the process you gave Timothy.
Thank you for preparing him to move forward in building the church.
Help us to find these words that have risen to the top of the others to draw us closer to you and your design for our own lives.
Can only one word make a difference?
I am reminded of the shortest verse in your Word.
And that one word ⏤ wept.
Oh Father, what it reveals about you.
Thank you for honing us to listen to your still small voice.
In your name I pray
Please leave your name and your last initial in the comments.
Thank you for commenting.
Thank you for leaving your name only.
Thank you for coming and reading and keeping your name private.
But in all of this - remember we are praying
for you to embrace God in ways you have never done before.
And remember we are also praying for each of you to begin praying for each other.
And please don't forget to pray for us too.
